Ridgeway supply the largest range of weldmesh gabion systems in Ireland, which can be used to provide economical and effective solutions to prevent or correct erosion. Installation can be temporary or permanent. Our gabions can also be used to create walls and retaining structures where a rustic, natural aesthetic is required. We specialize in the stabilization of slopes, retaining wall systems, the control of erosion and costal defence. Gabions can be used in a wide variety of sectors such as Construction, Civil Engineering, Landscaping or Architectural.
Gabion baskets can be supplied in any quantity – no order is too small. They come complete with all helicals and bracewire required for assembly.
Do our standard sizes not meet your requirements? Don’t worry we are able to supply bespoke sizes to suit your specific needs.
We have many different gabion options for you to choose from:
Concertainer Gabions: – Our Concertainer Gabions are a zinc aluminium coated revolutionary design of wire mesh baskets formed by connecting individual panels of mesh with spirals on vertical edge wires creating an open series of box compartments, which fold in a concertina fashion to be flat packed.
Concertainer Bastions: – Concertainer Bastions are factory lined internally with a non-woven geotextile membrane to the perimeter mesh panels of the unit, allowing for the use of suitably selected granular fills to ensure compaction of the materials without settlement.
Kyowa Filter Unit Rockbags – Our Kyowa Fliter Unit Rockbags are natural protection for the environment providing efficient land reinforcement for embankments, earthworks, harbour defences, emergency interventions, temporary installations, bridge pile protection, river bed and bank construction, artificial reefs and creating ecosystems. The application of our Kyowa Fliter Unit Rockbags will encourage aquatic life and plants to settle in new surroundings. For more information please visit www.rockbags.com.
Rock Netting: – Hexagonal rock netting is used to address the problem of instability of loose material, soil and rocks, which might dislodge from slopes. Our rock netting acts as a retaining structure.
Weldmesh Mattresses: – Weldmesh mattresses are prefabricated from welded steel wire mesh. They are manufactured from lighter grades of wire for their flexibility. Applications include scour protection beneath gabion walls where erosion in watercourses is prevalent and as channel lining to storm water drains and culverts.
